Why attend this course?

The last 20 years have seen a dramatic increase in both the complexity and integration level of data systems in the industry. If engineers, operators, and maintainers in your facility cannot say which are the top threats, impacts, or events related to a computerized control system failure, then that’s a good indicator that you need to conduct a CHAZOP.

Behind the scenes of the process lies the technology that controls 60-80% of the information on temperature, level, flow, pressure, etc. The failure of that technology to work as intended is risk not assessed during typical PHA studies(HAZOP, LOPA, QRA) and must be analyzed separately. A failure in these control systems should not interfere with the ability to bring the process to a safe state!

Any new control system or changes made to one would benefit from a CHAZOP study to determine where the new risks and vulnerabilities lie. Understanding the basics of what's involved in one will be of great help in mitigating risk at your facility.

This 1-day course is designed to deliver expert instruction on the technical content of a CHAZOP session and why they are performed. This includes understanding the principles behind each of the major methods (CHAZOP, What-if? and FMEA) and the fundamentals on CHAZOP methodology, noding, team composition and preparation for a CHAZOP session. The students will then practice what they have learned in preparing drawings and worksheets for a mini CHAZOP session.

Who Should Attend the CHAZOP Introduction Workshop?

  • Automation Technologists and Engineers
  • IT Professionals
  • Automation Suppliers and Vendors
  • Supervisors, Managers, and Engineers responsible for CHAZOP studies
